Kongsted is a collector of what some might call garbage. "One man's trash is another man's treasure" and finds many treasures on walks. There's something about broken and forgotten things that appeals to Kongsted, who spends time contemplating, touching, and listening to them to find out what they're trying to say and what they want. In this way, the items find their way into these works.

    Kongsted is concerned with getting really close to small things, and how  colors and shapes can be used to recreate the mood that arises when you look at them.

    Curiosity, frustration and patience drive these images forward. Sometimes items we find merely mumble and whisper to us, making it hard to understand them. In time, however, they open up and start telling their story...

    The works made for If Walls Could Talk are part of a personal eternity project: "The Collection".
